conditional or custom date formatting
So we have a need to display dates in "AP Style" date formatting. Here are the style rules:
Always use Arabic figures , without st, nd, rd or th. When a month isused with a specific date, abbreviate Jan., Feb., Aug., Sept., Oct., Nov. and Dec. When a phrase lists only a month and year, spell out the month and do not separate the month and the year with commas. When a phrase refers to a month, day and year, set off the year with commas. Use figures except for noon and midnight Use a.m. or p.m.(with periods)
So for example, you would have "Jan. 1, 2016" or "Sept. 10, 2016" or "May 31, 2016"
So this format wouldn't work for all months: %b. %-d, Y
So would creating a "new" format key like %P to represent month by these formatting rules or doing something else with a custom tag.
